Genesis was a Bible-themed quiz show on PAX, of which only one episode aired.

Format[edit | edit source]

Two teams (each representing their own church) played a game of answering Bible-related questions to win prizes for their church, and a grand prize package that they had each chosen for a charitable purpose.

The First Four Rounds[edit | edit source]

At the beginning of each round, a game board randomly chose a category to be played throughout the round. After that, McKrell started asking questions under that category. All questions were toss-ups, and they each had four possible answers given at the start of each one. The first player to buzz-in had a chance to answer. A correct answer scored points for that question; but an incorrect answer gave the opposing player(s) a chance to answer until there was one answer left. Point values increased throughout each round (going 100-200-250-300-400-500-600-700).

When time expired in the round, the team with the most points won a prize for their church. Unlike most game shows, both team's accumulated points didn't carry over from round to round; they were reset in-between rounds.

Free for All[edit | edit source]

Rounds 1 and 3 were "Free for All" rounds, meaning any player could answer.

One on One[edit | edit source]

The other two rounds were "One on One" rounds, meaning only one player from each team could answer.

Final Round: The Lightning Round[edit | edit source]

For this round, each team chose their best player to play the round. McKrell read rapid-fire questions in another category. What made this round different was that this time, the contestants chose their answers in secret, and they had four seconds to lock-in. Also, the point values went 100-200-250-300-400-500-700-750-1,000. Finally, the scores were not revealed until the end of the round.

The round lasted for two minutes, and the team with the most points when time expired won the game and received their chosen grand prize package. The losing team received a $5,000 gift certificate as a consolation prize.

Holy Land Challenge[edit | edit source]

In this segment (meant to be held at the end of the week), five contestants (supposedly winners from the first four days as well as the Friday winner) played one more round of questions from one more category. The first player to answer three questions correctly won a "Holy Land Tour" (a trip to Israel) for his/her church team.

Benediction/Bible Music Video[edit | edit source]

At the end of the show, McKrell gave a benediction/bible wisdom quote, followed by a spiritual-related music video being played over the credits (in this case, it was "Pray" by Rebecca St. James).
